The Mephisto Club by Tess Gerritsen

by lisfreese on Feb 8, 2009

Tess Gerritsen is often compared to Patricia Cornwell. Both authors have a flair for detailed descriptions of dead bodies and medical practices. Having read nearly everything written by either, I prefer Tess Gerritsen because her characters seem more plausible. The Mephisto Club, like others in this series, is a book you will probably not want to read during meal time. The premise this time around is that there is evil lurking on earth which not too many people know about if they haven't studied obscure Christian writings (that would be a LOT of people, since christianity is relatively new compared to other religions, a point also made in the book). This story is character driven with believable dialogue yet I don't think it's Ms. Gerritsen's best. The ending wasn't really a surprise to me, especially considering the names given to the dogs. That's all I'm giving away, tho. This isn't a tough read and you probably won't stay up all night to finish it. The Mephisto Club continues the stories of Detective Jane Rizzoli and Dr. Maura Isles, so if you are new to the series, start with the earlier books.


great title

I have read all of the Jane Rizzoli/Maura Isles books and they were great. Kept you hanging on til the end. Can't wait for the next in this exciting series.
